THE MAN BEHIND THE FURNITURE
Stig Leander is responsible for the majority of the designs in Leander. Stig served his apprenticeship as blacksmith and is skilled at using his hands and he has an incredible eye for design and function. With a passion for craftsmanship and a great portion of curiosity, he explores the materials that he works with and sees opportunities rather than limitations.
Stig doesn’t sketch his ideas. He dreams. He uses neither a computer nor a pad. But as an artist, he shapes his furniture using his hands and eyes. He challenges the materials’ properties and possibilities using cardboard, glue and wood. To the smallest detail. Until it feels right.
